Man Rescues Sick Stray He Finds Near Himalayan Monastery

 "I urge everyone to not simply walk by when you see an animal suffering. Take the time. Connect with the animal. Make the call if need be. But do something. Don't just walk by feeling sorry or helpless because you are not. But the animals often are."

High within the Himalayan mountains of Bhutan is that the Taktsang Palphug Monastery, a sacred Buddhist monastery also referred to as “Tiger’s Nest”. Visitors and pilgrims walk up the steep cliffside to go to this historic marvel inbuilt the 17th century.

Recently, when Tim Gorski, a filmmaker and animal activist, was on his thanks to the monastery, a stray dog crossed his path. The dog was friendly, but obviously sick; he was missing most of his hair thanks to mange.

From the instant he saw him, Tim knew he was getting to rescue the dog, who would find yourself being named “Tim” in his honor.

“Here is nice Tim the dog from Taktsang, and therefore the moment he met his soon-to-be rescuer,” The Maya Foundation wrote on Facebook when sharing Tim’s photo. “As many of us take this holy pilgrimage to wish and make offerings, I’m quite sure Tim made an equivalent journey knowing he could find salvation there – such a sensible doggie!”

Tim contacted Bhutan Animal Rescue and Care, who successively contacted The Maya Foundation to allow them to know that they had a dog “in need of some TLC”.

Transport was arranged with an area tour company to bring the dog right down to the Maya Foundation’s Barnyard Bhutan Animal Rescue & Sanctuary and as soon as he arrived he got “the Barnyard Spa” treatment, meaning a haircut, bath and pedicure.

He looked far better afterwards and therefore the Maya Foundation said he “is such a cool, playful guy”.

Within a matter of weeks, Tim was looking far better , even handsome, and his fur was growing back!

When Tim Gorski saw the changes he was blown away. “This is how the planet works, folks, through random acts of affection and kindness instead of detachment and indignation,” Gorski wrote during a post. “I urge everyone to not simply walk by once you see an animal suffering. Take the time. Connect with the animal. Make the decision if need be. But do something. Don’t just walk by feeling sorry or helpless because you're not. But the animals often are.”

The Maya Foundation’s Barnyard Animal Rescue & Sanctuary takes altogether sorts of animals from goats and burros to dogs and cats.

You can see more of the sanctuary and every one the animals they look after within the video below.

Share Tim’s remarkable recovery together with your friends! His rescue may be a wonderful reminder to never turn a blind eye to an animal in need.

  1. Sad the monks did not try and help him. Matthew 15:

    7 You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you:

    “‘These people honor me with their lips,
    but their hearts are far from me.
    They worship me in vain;
    their teachings are merely human rules.’[c
